I’m sharing from my novella Game On! which releases this Tuesday, June 21!
Heath Lancaster was happy to be on the practice squad on an NFL team, but instead of a lucky break taking him to the next level, a league-wide strike leaves him unemployed. A new semi-pro league in Virginia Beach give him another opportunity for work and love. This week we’re in Jordan’s POV. She’s just saved her friend GiGi and herself from being clobbered by Heath’s buddy’s misaligned football pass. GiGi has just told them they need to share their brews and is flirting with Heath’s buddy. Edited a bit to made excerpt in ten sentences.
He extended his hand and said his name, “Heath.”
“Miller?” Jordan asked. Almost as tall and as muscular as the pro tight-end, he was a definite hard-body and might have been threatening-looking if not for his endearing dimples and genuine smile.
He enveloped her hand with a firm grip. “Sorry, no. Lancaster is my last name, but you’d make a heck of a cornerback the way you picked off that pass.”
Electrified by his touch, her thoughts fired in directions she’d been dodging for months. “Jordan, sister to three older brothers and I can tackle, too, if necessary,” she said and grinned.
